Sweet Potato Chorizo Soup

It’s been an awesome summer! Aside from truly enjoying the work I’ve been doing, I just love the endless string of sunny days and balmy nights.

While summer still has a little fight left in her, like it or not, autumn is approaching. I can see it in the slight change of color on the tips of the leaves just outside our brownstone. Fall brings it’s own excitement!

I love walking outside on the first day that calls for a long sleeve shirt.

And the in-season ingredients at the local grocery store start to change as well. This sweet potato chorizo soup recipe is healthy enough for bikini season, but tastes way more like hockey season! Let’s applaud a great summer – and gear up for the changing leaves of autumn!

I knew this sweet potato chorizo soup was going to be a hit when I texted a pic to Ben who was out for the day.

He’s not a big fan of sweet potato soup generally, but I didn’t tell him what it was. His immediate reply was, “Instagram now!!!” Promising start.

When he returned later that afternoon, he barely said hello to me or the kitty. It was straight to the soup-pot on the stovetop to sample the goods. With a spoon in hand, and a beatific smile on his face, he said. “This is my new jam. It tastes like Spain.”

That taste of Spain he was referring to in this sweet potato soup was definitely the chorizo. Spanish chorizo is typically made with pimentón (a smoky Spanish paprika).

The chorizo in this recipe is blended directly into the broth – so not only are the sausage’s smoky and peppery elements present, they’re omnipotent! Jalapeño pepper, onions and garlic are the perfect bouquet to round out the flavor in this sweet potato chorizo soup, and counteract the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes.

Seriously, if you didn’t already know there were sweet potatoes in this recipe, I doubt you’d guess it!

Aside from a long list of sweet potatoes’ health benefits, they bring a gorgeous fall color palate to the dinner table. And sweet potato soup is a super easy dish you can add to your busy school-night recipe arsenal this season.

Ben said this sweet potato chorizo soup reminded him of my carrot ginger soup recipe, by way of Barcelona.

That’s a compliment I can accept with open arms! What about you… What’s your favorite dish to eat when the temps start to dip in the fall? Tell me about it in the comments!
